Stock Turbo PSI HELP

How much pressure can my stop 7.3 turbo handle safely??? I want to put out a good amount of boost but not have to worry about my turbo coming apart. I have the DP Tuner, Wicked Wheel, Banks Big Head Actuator, and ITP's boost annihilator. What kinda numbers can I see guys?

I can hit 28 with 80hp econo Dp tune and stock turbo and wastegate. Haven't even tried to watch boost with 140hp extreme tune. I get bad surge towing and want either a housing or WW and bigger wastegate!!
